The Iraqi Government and Lufthansa Consulting are continuing their longstanding relationship in order to further enhance the aviation system in Iraq. The country’s Ministry of Transport signed a comprehensive agreement for a long-term strategic advisory and implementation project that will focus on restructuring the national carrier Iraqi Airways and the civil aviation authority (ICAA) and on optimizing Iraq’s airports.
The latest contract aims to implement the vision of the Ministry of Transport
• to strengthen the ICAA in accordance with international standards and best practices
• to enable Iraqi Airways to become a leading carrier in the Middle East
• to provide a global network for the Iraqi people and the international market
• to transform Baghdad International Airport into a hub serving three continents.
Iraq’s Minister of Transport, H.E. Kadoum Finjan Al-Hamami, says: “This contract reflects the continuity of a long-lasting relationship between Iraq and Germany.”
“Lufthansa Consulting is proud to be chosen as an implementer and strategic advisor to the Iraqi Minister of Transport with a view to modernizing the aviation industry,” states Dr. Andreas Jahnke, Managing Director of Lufthansa Consulting. “With our international expertise acquired over 40 years as an aviation consultancy and our commitment to integrity and compliance with international standards, we are well equipped to support the Iraqi authorities and institutions in enhancing the situation in the interests of the people of Iraq.”
